This coming weekend at Eastbrook Church we begin a new preaching series entitled “Songs of the Savior: Psalms for Advent.” As you can already tell, this series corresponds to the season of Advent, the start of the liturgical year that leads to our celebration of Christ’s birth.
The Psalms are referred to as the prayerbook of the Bible. This collection of prayer-songs gathers up the wide-ranging experiences and emotions of humanity at prayer with God. All through these prayers are clues to God’s plan to bring lasting hope and new beginnings through a promised Messiah. As we enter into Advent, remembering Christ’s nativity and anticipating His return, we journey through four psalms that are songs of the Messiah.
November 30/December 1 – “The Beloved Anointed of God” [Psalm 2]
December 7/8 – “The Suffering Messiah” [Psalm 22]
December 14/15 – “The Eternal Priest” [Psalm 110]
December 21/22 – “The Perfect King” [Psalm 72]
